Is it possible to have multiple libraries with foobar2000? Even if it's a hack to install another instance of it and run it concurrently, I'm interested. Thanks for any pointers.

What version of foobar2000 are you using?

You may have to change the "Location of configuration files" (found in preferences/general ..in the new betas anyway) from "User profile folder" to "Application install folder" before making a copy of the program folder... just a thought.

Be careful though, and read the warning in preferences under this option...

Ah ha, thanks, that was it, I'm using the latest beta 6. Awesome, I'll give this a try!

Well, the option/copying trick worked fine, I have separate libraries now. The one part that doesn't work is that most of my collection are .WAV files and I guess they don't support Genre tagging. I had hoped to tag all my audio samples -- like say a drumloop with "jazz, uptempo, 135bpm, realdrumkit", etc. But I get this error when I try to do that:

Could not update tags (Unsupported format or corrupted file)

So I assume that's a limitation of the WAV file metadata. I had hoped maybe foobar kept its own database. Anyone know a way around this?
